Flawed by Cecelia Ahern

This story is an intense mix of human rights issues that have come up over history and the Scarlet Letter. You can’t aide a Flawed person but when that conflicts with the right thing to do, Celeste’s world is turned upside down.

Publisher’s DescriptionYou will be punished…

Celestine North lives a perfect life. She’s a model daughter and sister, she’s well-liked by her classmates and teachers, and she’s dating the impossibly charming Art Crevan.

But then Celestine encounters a situation where she makes an instinctive decision. She breaks a rule and now faces life-changing repercussions. She could be imprisoned. She could be branded. She could be found flawed.

In her breathtaking young adult debut, bestselling author Cecelia Ahern depicts a society where perfection is paramount and flaws lead to punishment. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.


Luna Lovebooks says…

Likes: The concept of this book intrigued me. A future where everyone is perfect. One step out of line and you are branded flawed and basically treated as an outcast. You can only eat certain meals, you have a curfew and a special place to sit on the bus, and people hate you. I like the real world context that this novel has, not just in today’s society, but from looking at our society’s past as well. I liked the way the characters and the society of this novel start to rebel and divide.

Dislikes: Celeste at times was very naïve. And for being a logical person, she missed a few ques that were very obvious to me. While I had no issues with the events in the book some may consider them graphic or even triggering. The ending was more of a “What?” moment than a cliff hanger.
